Former MIKE AND THE MECHANICS star Paul Carrack's tour is under threat after his tour van was stolen from a service station.

THE LIVING YEARS star had parked the vehicle in the car park of the BREWERS FAYRE TRAVEL LODGE in Brampton, east England, but when he returned in the morning it was no longer there.

If the van is not found, Carrack faces having to cancel his current three-month long British tour, as all his musical equipment was in the vehicle.

A spokeswoman for Carrack says, "At the moment it is purely a case of establishing whether replacement equipment can be supplied in time."
